Shriver Center Webinar on alternatives to guardianship available online

 

Guardianship has long been the primary method of handling decision making for individuals with intellectual and mental health disabilities. But is it the best method? At this Advocacy in Action webinar held by the Shriver Center on May 7, 2014, three experts in the field discussed guardianship and its alternatives. Topics included the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the theoretical underpinnings of the movement toward preserving the autonomy of individuals with intellectual and mental health disabilities. The Protection and Advocacy system’s involvement was also discussed and a supported decision making pilot project in Massachusetts was featured.
